    March 26, 2018 - This was good. Still drinkable. Though two years out of the window this bottle was very enjoyable. Paired perfectly with grilled chicken. If your bottle is like this one would still think there's another 3-5 years left easily.

  • Adventr.us Does not like this wine:

    February 26, 2018 - Should have pulled this one out of the cellar a year or two ago; or maybe I just have a bad bottle. Unfortunately my bottle is a mess at this point, with stewey fruits, flabby body, disjointed oak, and plenty of heat on the finish. Tried with some braised beef, even that didn’t help.

    August 13, 2017 - Vibrant. Blue and purple fruit blend nicely together. Finish of rich cassis. Held up wonderfully

    March 29, 2015 - Dark purple. Red berries, dark chocolate, pepper, and spices on the nose. Strong new oak, robust black fruits and blackberry bramble. Not particularly complex, but very well made. I thought this wine was corked until it had breathed for a solid two hours, at which point it really opened up. My guess is that it will drink well for a long while yet.

    February 20, 2015 - VERY oaky. It's like Tammy Fay Baker - WAY too much makeup.
